saw a handful of republicans on chat shows saying, oh, we'll get the vapors and faint if any defense spending increases are not carried out. what he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians, and in point of fact that's not where the, certainly not where the country is, it's not where the modern republican party is, it's not where the republicans in the house and the senate are. there's some guys on spending committees who'd like to spend money, that's understandable. but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to give the pentagon more flexibility, but they need to save the same amount of dollars promised in the sequester as the rest of the government does. and so the president misjudged believing that republicans would panic during the negotiations on fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. and that never happened. the republicans, let's delay the sequester two months, and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh, good, i'm going to get my tax

to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower manhattan dr. marc lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. do you think the program the caucus is putting forth will ever happen in this country? >> no. i think that's a template for a kind a progress
arguments in two case es on same-sex marriage. at issue the defense of marriage act and california's proposition eight. let's start with doma. it's the federal law that defines marriage as a union between and a man and a woman. it keeps gays from get iting th same rights. president clinton signed doma into law in 1996. he now says it should be struck down. avery freedman from cleveland, good to e see you. >> hi, fredricka. >> and richard herman, good to see you as well. avery, you first on this. two cases before the supreme court. let's begin with doma. how much is at stake here? >> i think this is one of the great cases that the the supreme court will hear this term. that and prop eight. but doma which was compromised legislation and signed by bill clinton back in 1996 has always been questionable in terms of constitutionality. and two federal appeals courts have held that that law that restricts personnel rights that is by the federal government violates the constitution. it violates the equal protection law. in terms of the significance of it, it's really march madness. this is
.s. supreme court this work. the court will hear arguments on the defense of marriage act and california's proposition 8 which bans same-sex marriage. cnn justice correspondent joe johns is here with details. >> fred, the battle over same-sex marriage in california has been going on for years and coming up this week it finally arrives at the u.s. supreme court. we talked to one of the couples involved in the case who, win or lose, have already assured themselves a small place in history with their legal challenge. they have been together four years before they got married last october. don't let the wedding dresses fool you. their lives are not all satin and pearls. >> well, i'm an airman in the united states air force reserves and -- >> i'm a police officer with the metropolitan police department here in d.c. >> which makes this couple a case study in how america's married but unequal approach to same-sex relationships can play out. >> as an airman, you get a constant reminder that you're second class. >> jamelle is a federal employee but the federal defensive marriage act bar is recogn

to bear the duty and share the honor of serving in our common defense. to all the men and women of the united states armed forces now and in the middle east, the piece of a troubled world and the hopes of an oppressed people now depend on you. host: from the wall street journal, they report this -- host: the washington post front page has the story -- host: the los angeles has -- times has this headline -- host: the boston globe -- host: billy in arkansas, iraq veteran. caller: good morning. i just want to make a brief comments. i was one of the soldiers who was one of the first to go into iraq in 2003. there wereieve weapons of mass destruction anorak -- in iraq. obviously, he has plenty of time to get those weapons out of there. the other comments i would like to make is, when we are talking about veterans who returned from war, there is a great discrimination that is seldom talked about in the military. that is the discrimination of a reservist and an active-duty guy. guys a national guard going to combat. when you return home, you are treated differently. needs aonal guard r

in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, because it was on partisan lines. i was particularly disheartened by one amendment that failed on a party-line vote that was offered by senator portman from ohio. his amendment was simply asking the congressional budget office to provide additional information with the cost estimates that it provides on legislation affecting revenues. that's right. it was just asking for additional information. and every member of the majority voted against it. how could a request for additional information be so partisan? we can and must do better for our constituents and our country. several weeks from now we may see the president's budget proposal. of course it'll be late to the game since the house and senate have already acted on the budget
is an unconstitutional and absurd view that the government can limit our right to self-defense. so the federal government with guns in a state, will it need the assistance of state police to enforce those regulations? yes. that's where we are on that. >>steve: and the reason a number of states are trying to come up with this new gun legislation is because they see washington, d.c. and they're worried about a gun grab? >> correct. the states -- our home state of new jersey could not, for example, use the police to frustrate federal law enforcement but it could say to state and local place you will not cooperate. that will make federal stphoerplt of tighter -- make federal enforcement of tighter federal gun laws nearly impossible. >>steve: we'll find out what they do do because of course the federal government has bigger fish to fry. >> where did kilmeade go? >>steve: i don't know. straight ahead on this tuesday morning. did the kwao*eugt brothers get it -- did the wright brothers get it wrong? historians now saying the wright brothers weren't the first in flight. if you're a veteran in work, stick around.
's in a department of defense encrypted e-mail, nothing is really secure. but these cut-out accounts that public officials in washington have gotten in trouble for using before, that their friends use when they correspond with them, there are a lot of people as whoever is out there doing the stuff, a lot of people their collars may be feeling tighter today for what they have floater around out there in cyberspace. >> megyn: guccifier, i love it. >> i think it sounds bet sneer did you live in the suburbs, not if the government has its way. a government report suggests there may be a plan to change where and how people are living in america. hope you like manhattan. i hope you like the city. and a dramatic twist as the cash-strapped island of cyprus is now talking about nationalizing its country's pensions to save the struggling economy there. so he they couldn't seize the bank accounts, it's under consideration, now they're going to seize your pension. and we'll see how private money keeps coming up to attempts to head off disaster and are people too quick to dismiss the notion this could happen
of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
,000 wounded. the defense department reports $32 billion has been spent since 2003. tom cotton served as a platoon leader. as a fiscal conservative i asked if it was right to take the country to war without asking the americans to shoulder more of the financial burden. >> the american people have paid a great price for the ishlgs rack w iraq war. many more who served and the toll it took on their families. today is the day we should remember their sacrifices and they deposed a dictator and freed 30 million arabs and set up a way. national security is the first priority of the u.s. government, i think the war was worth it. we have to preserve the gains we achieved over the last ten years and beyond, but i think the war is worth it. >> do you think the war is to blame for the deficits we see these days? >> no. it's really not. if you look at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years,

an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups along the way. but i think those are the exception to the rule, which is a very functional u.s./israel relationship. >> are we at a stage now, aaron, where there is no longer as much pressure regionally to do something about the israeli/palestinian negotiations because there is so much of a crisis atmosphere given what's happening on the border of all of these countries, the relationship with egypt, the morsi government, the war in syria and the revolutions and the arab spring have created a completely new context. >> it's very true, the region is as broken, angry and dysfunctional as i've ever seen it. most of it is not the fault of this president. but the reality is this israeli/palestinian issue still resonates. it's the one issue that emotionally, ideologically, politically, still unite as dysfunctional and divided arab world. the problem the president has, i'll sum it up very clearly -- the two-state so
, like dropping all aid to israel and pretty much zeroing out defense spending and all sorts of things. it seems like they don't even know about him. but unless rand paul becomes the nominee, what would lead to any real policy changes in the next presidential republican candidacy? >> robert is right. policy changes aren't going to be driven by the republican national committee, they're driven by the candidates for president next round. certainly if you look at one of the recommendations was we had too many debates and the primary season was too long. i come from the school there's no such thing as a bad question, only bad answers. we had a lot of bad answers on a debate stage that on any given night resembled a reality show. that's what part of the problem is. one of the things as a republican that gives you hope, you look at some of the people to solve the leadership deficit, chris christie, marco rubio, we have a cast of characters for the 2016 race that's different than the cast of characters in the 2012 race, so i think there's a little silver lining in that for republicans. >> let
administration has provided, including iron dome, including defense funding for israel during very difficult times, he has announced that we are going to begin talks on another ten-year process, arrangement, to ensure american military assistance to israel. i think this is very significant. and i want to express my thanks for everything that you have done and i want to thank you also for that statement you just made. i think it is very, very important. so i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding event and by what is happening. what is actually taking place. and for this, you know, there is a simple answer for your question. the gentlemen from nbc. see, a another term as president and another term as prime minister. that fixes things. >> thank you very much, everybody. >> president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu just wrapping up their pros conference in jerusalem. let's get right to andrea mitchell who is there with more on what with we just heard. andrea, lots of ground covered today. >> a lot of ground covered. i think what you saw at the end there was the begi
